Your Perks: 1) A digital subscription to Playboy that also earns you a chance to win an invitation to party at the mansion. A few Playmates have already RSVP’d. 2) An afternoon at a private Hamptons estate where you’ll smoke cigars and see Lamborghinis. 3) An exclusive LES bottomless brunch. Scratch that mimosa itch.
Things to do for June 18, 2015
Porchlight, Rooftops and Old Watches
Goodness gracious, weekends of fire.
Indecently Handsome Shoes and Watches
Riccardo Bestetti has never brought his bespoke-Italian-shoe operation to America. But he is now. And that’s what this is about. That and a lot of rare vintage Rolexes an Indianapolis horology expert is bringing to sell. Right, those are the things this was about.
Kim Gordon Is Also a Painter
You may know Kim Gordon as the quite legendary bassist of a quite legendary band called Sonic Youth. And that makes sense, because she is certainly that. But she’s also a painter, and you can see her work in that medium in Chelsea this weekend. Can and should, in fact.
A Massive Outdoor Bar in Ridgewood
Where the frontiers of Bushwick and Ridgewood meet, you’ll now find a vast outdoor bar with grass, ping-pong, beer, burgers and giant chess. And the place where Mister Sunday will be setting up shop this summer. It’s interborough cooperation.
Cocktails and Crawfish at Porchlight
We know you don’t have much interest in High Line–inspired cocktails at a Danny Meyer spot just off of that High Line. But what if they were to sweeten the deal with a Sunday crawfish boil? We’ll wait while you consider this offer.
What Else Is New
The Latest in Gansevoort Rooftops
Just look at the new iteration of the Gansevoort Meatpacking rooftop. It features all of a pool, very little ceiling, cocktails, potted palms, Hudson views and chairs that promote lying more than sitting. Because you don’t sit at less than a 120-degree angle on Saturdays.
